      Francesco Ricasoli, the likeable and ambitious owner of Castello di Brolio, brings out elegance and finesse as well as a wonderful depth of fruit in his wines. Rocca Guicciarda Riserva is a soft, silky wine. Dark ruby, rich, open bouquet of cherry and pomegranate, plus a fine almond and tobacco note.

    • "Brolio" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017

      “Brolio” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017

      Brolio Riserva is quite classic in its composition, in its ageing, in its entire impression from the label to the last sip. Velvety, dense ruby, dense nose with rich fruit, especially blackberry and some elderberry. Supple on the palate, the course is polished with fine-grained tannin and a long-lasting finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby red. In the nose of rose hips, pomegranate, wild strawberries and fine spice, inviting. On the palate clear, with present fruit, stretches juicily over the tongue, also salty, fills a wide arc, in the final long lasting and with emphasis." Falstaff

      "Packaged with a black label to show its Riserva status, this beautiful wine shows classic lines and good harmony. From a hot and dry vintage that threw many challenges at vintners across Tuscany, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio reveals the expertise and know-how of the Ricasoli winemaking team. It opens to dark cherry and blackberry with earthy background aromas and plenty of smoke and crushed mineral. This is the kind of wine you'll want next to a wood-fired lasagna." Robert Parker

      "A fresh, firm 2017 with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate character. It's medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Like the light bitter lemon at the finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio is rich, expansive and super-expressive. Black cherry, spice, leather, espresso and a kick of Merlot richness all build in the glass. Creamy, open-knit and inviting, the 2017 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. It's one of the better recent editions I can recall." Vinous

      "Opening to a golden amber color, the 2011 Vin Santo del Chianti Classico Castello di Brolio (packaged in a 500-milliliter bottle) shows aromas of honey, caramel, roasted nuts, vanilla and brown sugar. There is silky, seamless integration of these flavors that flow together over the palate in absolute harmony.

      “Casalferro” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Pure variety Merlot, which offers a very spicy nose, multi-layered red fruit aromas, a powerful and dense body. Big, firm, smooth and with potential for quite a few years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby with a slight violet shimmer. Shows notes of tobacco and liquorice on the nose, lots of blackberry. Lots of juicy fruit on the palate, fine-meshed tannin, plenty of crisp acidity." Falstaff

      "Full and juicy with lots of ripe fruit and spices. Firm and silky tannins. A little tight now but shows potential." James Suckling

      "The Barone Ricasoli 2016 Casalferro puts a purely Tuscan fingerprint on the Merlot grape. From a classic vintage that was especially favorable for an early-ripening variety such as this, the wine is beautifully tonic and tightly wound initially, although it cedes and expands quite elegantly onto the palate. The bouquet opens gracefully to dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar. These elements are balanced and weighed against each other with just the right intensity." Robert Parker

    • "Colledilà" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015

      “Colledilà" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three micro-layers that will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. As a result, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione range now includes the famous Castello di Brolio as well as three Cru vineyards (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% stocked with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      Colledilà grapes come from the soils of Monte Morello. The 7.6 hectare Ein-Weinberg property was planted in 2002 on very rocky soils rich in calcium, clay and organic matter. These characteristics give this wine its sharpness and concentration, which promise a long maturation in the cellar.

      In the bouquet ripe, dark cherry fruit and blackberry aromas, followed by tar, liquorice and potting soil. On the palate a fine earthiness, cherry and plum, with soft and slightly sweet tannins. A wonderfully structured wine that leaves nothing to be desired in depth, length and balanced proportions. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fresh, bright ruby garnet. Open, fine nose with notes of raspberry and fresh cherry. Juicy and clear on the palate, opening with present, fine tannin, salty, long aftertaste." Falstaff

      "From a single parcel of vines planted on soils rich with alberese stones, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà is a beautiful expression of 100% Sangiovese that offers a very genuine interpretation of this warm and sunny vintage. You absolutely taste the ripeness of the fruit at hand with dark cherry and blackberry flavors followed by tar, licorice and potting soil. These earthy aromas transport your mind and soul to the thickly forested Gaiole in Chianti area." Robert Parker

      "This is fantastic Gran Selezione with such finesse and beauty. Medium body, delicate tannins and a juicy finish. Love the plum and cedar character. So subtle and polished." James Suckling

      “Roncicone” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three micro-layers that will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. As a result, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione range now includes the famous Castello di Brolio as well as three Cru vineyards (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% stocked with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      The new Cru Roncicone comes from soils with maritime deposits. It is a 10.1 hectare plot that was planted between 1998 and 2000 with a density of 6,000 plants per hectare. The soils are rich in marine fossils with sand at the top and thicker clay under the topsoil. Our impression of this wine is that it is most immediately and softly structured.

      Roncicone has a deep dark, fruity smoky bouquet. On the palate dark violet fruits, paired with notes of forest soil, tobacco and a nice spice. The volume is full and deep, the tannins very accessible even at a young age and the finish is flanked by a well-structured acid structure, which will also provide a very good aging potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "It comes from a single vineyard at 320 metres above sea level, with a wonderful aroma of wild berries and herbs; the start is fresh and juicy, the acidity reviving and in perfect harmony with the tannins, full of elegance in the style of a Burgundy until the end." Vinum

      "Here is a new exciting wine from Francesco Ricasoli that represents the hands-on results of a long zoning and research project underway at this estate to better understand the potential of each single vineyard within the greater Castello di Brolio property. The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio Roncicone is a soft and velvety expression with a long bouquet of dark and purple fruit, tilled earth, spice and tobacco. The wine offers volume, grit and a more accessible or sweet tannin. This is a great steak wine made from 100% Sangiovese that was aged in 500-liter tonneaux. Some 6,000 bottles were made. This vineyard site is rich in marine fossils." Robert Parker

      "I love the purity of fruit to this Gran Selezione that shows hibiscus, orange peel, violets, lavender, early grey tea, cloves, tobacco and wet earth. Elegant and flowing with lithe yet structured tannins, intensely refreshing acidity and a long, complex finish. Superb sangiovese." James Suckling

The range of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione now includes three cru sites (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo) in addition to the famous Castello di Brolio, all of which are planted with 100% Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      The grapes of Colledilà come from the soils of Monte Morello. The 7.6 hectare single-vineyard plot was planted in 2002 on very rocky soils rich in calcium, clay and organic matter. These characteristics give this wine its sharpness and concentration, promising long ageing in the cellar.

      Ripe, dark cherry fruit and blackberry aromas, followed by tar, liquorice and potting soil. On the palate, a fine earthiness, cherry and plum, plus finely knit and slightly sweet tannins. The dense fruit and pleasant acid wire the Sangiovese provide the necessary freshness. Masterfully composed! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pure Sangiovese from a site at 380 metres above sea level, which expresses the character of the Chianti Classico very well: intense aromas of wild strawberries and flowers, also nuances of spices; juicy in the mouth, the acidity perfectly balanced with the tannin, powerful finish. Precise Sangiovese, which also promises a lot of storability." Vinum

      "Sparkling, intense ruby. Appealing, finely marked nose, shows notes of violets, fresh cherry, some mulberry. Round and balanced on the palate, gives itself surprisingly fresh, very good tension." Falstaff

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà is fabulous, and also one of the best wines I have tasted from Castello di Brolio recently. A burst of sweet red berry fruit, fresh flowers, mint and blood orange give the 2017 its distinctive, effusive personality. It is remarkably nuanced. Soaring aromatics and silky tannins add to its charm, which is considerable." Vinous

      "The Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà sources its fruit from a site at 380 meters in elevation called Monte Morello with calcareous alberese soils. These conditions give extra focus and linearity to the wine with layered aromas of crushed stone and spice. The wine is equally fruity with blackberry, wild cherry and crushed rose petal. Colledilà is a classic and lasting expression from Gaiole in Chianti." Robert Parker

      "The purity of fruit here is stunning with blackberry, blueberry and orange-peel aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with ultra fine tannins. Racy and focused with precision and polish that is very impressive for the vintage." James Suckling

    • "Brolio" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Brolio” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2017 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Brolio Riserva is quite classic in its composition, in its ageing, in its entire impression from the label to the last sip. Velvety, dense ruby, dense nose with rich fruit, especially blackberry and some elderberry. Supple on the palate, the course is polished with fine-grained tannin and a long-lasting finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright ruby red. In the nose of rose hips, pomegranate, wild strawberries and fine spice, inviting. On the palate clear, with present fruit, stretches juicily over the tongue, also salty, fills a wide arc, in the final long lasting and with emphasis." Falstaff

      "Packaged with a black label to show its Riserva status, this beautiful wine shows classic lines and good harmony. From a hot and dry vintage that threw many challenges at vintners across Tuscany, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio reveals the expertise and know-how of the Ricasoli winemaking team. It opens to dark cherry and blackberry with earthy background aromas and plenty of smoke and crushed mineral. This is the kind of wine you'll want next to a wood-fired lasagna." Robert Parker

      "A fresh, firm 2017 with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate character. It's medium-to full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Like the light bitter lemon at the finish." James Suckling

      "The 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Brolio is rich, expansive and super-expressive. Black cherry, spice, leather, espresso and a kick of Merlot richness all build in the glass. Creamy, open-knit and inviting, the 2017 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. It's one of the better recent editions I can recall." Vinous

    • "CeniPrimo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017

      “CeniPrimo” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three microlocations, which will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. The range of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione now includes, in addition to the famous Castello di Brolio, three cru sites (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% planted with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      CeniPrimo is a single-varietal Sangiovese from soils shaped by a former river course. It is a 6.4 hectare site planted in 1998 with southwest exposure. This site is in a valley on the Arbia River, and the soils are very complex at this point with alluvium and clay that is low in organic matter and lower in limestone. From our tasting, it seems to be the most nuanced and diverse of the three single vineyard Gran Selezione.

      Intense, fresh and bright bouquet of violets and wild spicy notes. In the drink, an elegant acidity and fine mineral slate traces. Cherry, blackberry, plum, white pepper and a little rosemary lead the perfectly structured drop into a never-ending and multi-layered finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Comes from a vineyard at 300 metres above sea level, characterised by river alluvial soils, stays for about one and a half months in 500-litre barrels: elegant, finely chiselled Sangiovese nose with notes of raspberries, violets and balsamic components; harmonious in the mouth with fine acid points and polished tannin, elegant, almost Burgundian-like finish. Should age." Vinum

      "Deep, dark ruby violet. Initially a bit closed on the nose, then lots of dark berry fruit, especially cassis, black cherry and tobacco. Full and concentrated on the palate, lots of grippy, gripping tannin, still seems a little edgy, needs additional maturity." Falstaff

      "Dark cherry, leather, spice, menthol, rose petal and cedar flesh out in the 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione CeniPrimo. Powerful and intense in the glass, with notable density to match its vertical feel, the 2017 remains pretty approachable. It will drink nicely with minimal cellaring." Vinous

      "Presenting an extremely elegant mid-weight style, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio CeniPrimo dances across the senses with grace and softness despite any preconceptions concerning this hot, not always easy vintage. The wine opens beautifully in the glass and tastes even better the next day. Delicate forest berry, cassis, dried herbs and crushed flowers give the wine a lot of material that is presented to the senses in careful stages." Robert Parker

      "This is very perfumed and fruity with cherries, light currants and just a hint of vanilla. It's medium-bodied with tight, polished and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Creamy and refined, yet structured. Subtle and very, very long." James Suckling

    • "Casalferro" Rosso Toscana IGT 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Casalferro” Rosso Toscana IGT 2015 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Pure Merlot, which offers a very spicy nose with complex aromas of red fruits, a powerful and dense body. Large, firm, smooth and with potential for several years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense, dark ruby with a violet hue. Open and inviting nose with nuances of fresh plums, cherries and some rum pot, pithy and spicy. Very juicy with good pressure and fresh, crunchy fruit, enveloping berry spice, long and dense in the finish." Falstaff

      "A pure expression of Merlot, the 2015 Casalferro is a velvety and deeply enriched red wine. The magical forces of sunny Tuscany and exuberant Merlot are combined here to produce a wine of intensity and sweet softness. It caresses the palate, thanks to the softness and the succulent nature of its texture. The warm 2015 vintage also leaves its mark in terms of concentration and richness." Robert Parker

      "This is pure and silky, boasting cherry, raspberry, peony and spice flavors. Intense and harmonious, picking up accents of chocolate, tobacco and mineral on the lingering finish. Merlot." Wine Spectator

      "Spicy oak with red fruit, blueberry and cherry aromas. The palate is gently smoky with fine tannins and a chalky minerality." Decanter

      "Blackberries, blackcurrants, dark plums, Chinese spices and hints of vanilla. Full body, incredibly structured tannins, plenty of juicy blue fruit and a long finish. It's all so balanced and refined yet muscular." James Suckling

      In the bouquet ripe, dark cherry fruit and blackberry aromas, followed by tar, liquorice and potting soil. On the palate a fine earthiness, cherry and plum, with soft and slightly sweet tannins. A wonderfully structured wine that leaves nothing to be desired in depth, length and balanced proportions. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Fresh, bright ruby garnet. Open, fine nose with notes of raspberry and fresh cherry. Juicy and clear on the palate, opening with present, fine tannin, salty, long aftertaste." Falstaff

      "From a single parcel of vines planted on soils rich with alberese stones, the 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà is a beautiful expression of 100% Sangiovese that offers a very genuine interpretation of this warm and sunny vintage. You absolutely taste the ripeness of the fruit at hand with dark cherry and blackberry flavors followed by tar, licorice and potting soil. These earthy aromas transport your mind and soul to the thickly forested Gaiole in Chianti area." Robert Parker

      "This is fantastic Gran Selezione with such finesse and beauty. Medium body, delicate tannins and a juicy finish. Love the plum and cedar character. So subtle and polished." James Suckling

      "Bright ruby with a slight violet shimmer. Shows notes of tobacco and liquorice on the nose, lots of blackberry. Lots of juicy fruit on the palate, fine-meshed tannin, plenty of crisp acidity." Falstaff

      "Full and juicy with lots of ripe fruit and spices. Firm and silky tannins. A little tight now but shows potential." James Suckling

      "The Barone Ricasoli 2016 Casalferro puts a purely Tuscan fingerprint on the Merlot grape. From a classic vintage that was especially favorable for an early-ripening variety such as this, the wine is beautifully tonic and tightly wound initially, although it cedes and expands quite elegantly onto the palate. The bouquet opens gracefully to dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar. These elements are balanced and weighed against each other with just the right intensity." Robert Parker

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three micro-layers that will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. As a result, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione range now includes the famous Castello di Brolio as well as three Cru vineyards (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% stocked with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      The new Cru Roncicone comes from soils with maritime deposits. It is a 10.1 hectare plot that was planted between 1998 and 2000 with a density of 6,000 plants per hectare. The soils are rich in marine fossils with sand at the top and thicker clay under the topsoil. Our impression of this wine is that it is most immediately and softly structured.

      Roncicone has a deep dark, fruity smoky bouquet. On the palate dark violet fruits, paired with notes of forest soil, tobacco and a nice spice. The volume is full and deep, the tannins very accessible even at a young age and the finish is flanked by a well-structured acid structure, which will also provide a very good aging potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "It comes from a single vineyard at 320 metres above sea level, with a wonderful aroma of wild berries and herbs; the start is fresh and juicy, the acidity reviving and in perfect harmony with the tannins, full of elegance in the style of a Burgundy until the end." Vinum

      "Here is a new exciting wine from Francesco Ricasoli that represents the hands-on results of a long zoning and research project underway at this estate to better understand the potential of each single vineyard within the greater Castello di Brolio property. The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio Roncicone is a soft and velvety expression with a long bouquet of dark and purple fruit, tilled earth, spice and tobacco. The wine offers volume, grit and a more accessible or sweet tannin. This is a great steak wine made from 100% Sangiovese that was aged in 500-liter tonneaux. Some 6,000 bottles were made. This vineyard site is rich in marine fossils." Robert Parker

      "I love the purity of fruit to this Gran Selezione that shows hibiscus, orange peel, violets, lavender, early grey tea, cloves, tobacco and wet earth. Elegant and flowing with lithe yet structured tannins, intensely refreshing acidity and a long, complex finish. Superb sangiovese." James Suckling

      “Castello di Brolio” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2015 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      Castello di Brolio - a Super-Chianti Classico of the highest quality Gran Selezione and next to the Colledilà the second flagship of Barone Ricasoli. It comes from the vineyard of the same name, which has been the summer residence of the Ricasoli family since 1141. Powerful ruby, in the fragrance cherries, plums, some tobacco. On the palate it has a mature fruity note, racy, structured, long and full of finesse. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, rich ruby with a slight garnet shimmer. Very open and accessible nose, smells seductively of ripe cherries, some cloves and blueberries. Round and smooth in the base and course, a very soft and round Chianti, fine-meshed tannin, a lot of sweet enamel." Falstaff

      "Floral, cherry and bell pepper nose and taste, fine tannins, then a very long finish and gentle oaky aftertaste." Decanter

      "Sweet, ripe cherry and raspberry flavors define this Chianti Classico from start to finish, augmented by almond, iron and tar accents, with a hefty dose of grainy tannins. All the elements come together on the juicy aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "The 2015 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio takes a few minutes to open and settle in the glass. The bouquet here is redolent of pressed cherry and dried blackberry with underbrush, dark spice, forest floor and even a touch of wild porcino mushroom. The mouthfeel is smooth and loosely textured, which gives the wine an accessible and immediate personality. These vineyard sites in Gaiole in Chianti are characterized by crushed alberese rock soils. These unique growing conditions always add to the focus and the sharpness of the aromas." Robert Parker

      "A fresh and linear Gran Selezione Chianti Classico with firm and chewy tannins and dark fruits. Full body. Structured. Give it two or three years to come together." James Suckling

      "Bright ruby with a slight violet shimmer. Shows notes of tobacco and liquorice on the nose, lots of blackberry. Lots of juicy fruit on the palate, fine-meshed tannin, plenty of crisp acidity." Falstaff

      "Full and juicy with lots of ripe fruit and spices. Firm and silky tannins. A little tight now but shows potential." James Suckling

      "The Barone Ricasoli 2016 Casalferro puts a purely Tuscan fingerprint on the Merlot grape. From a classic vintage that was especially favorable for an early-ripening variety such as this, the wine is beautifully tonic and tightly wound initially, although it cedes and expands quite elegantly onto the palate. The bouquet opens gracefully to dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar. These elements are balanced and weighed against each other with just the right intensity." Robert Parker

    • "Roncicone" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 <br>Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      “Roncicone” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016 · Double-MAGNUM in OWC

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three micro-layers that will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. As a result, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione range now includes the famous Castello di Brolio as well as three Cru vineyards (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% stocked with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      The new Cru Roncicone comes from soils with maritime deposits. It is a 10.1 hectare plot that was planted between 1998 and 2000 with a density of 6,000 plants per hectare. The soils are rich in marine fossils with sand at the top and thicker clay under the topsoil. Our impression of this wine is that it is most immediately and softly structured.

      Roncicone has a deep dark, fruity smoky bouquet. On the palate dark violet fruits, paired with notes of forest soil, tobacco and a nice spice. The volume is full and deep, the tannins very accessible even at a young age and the finish is flanked by a well-structured acid structure, which will also provide a very good aging potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "It comes from a single vineyard at 320 metres above sea level, with a wonderful aroma of wild berries and herbs; the start is fresh and juicy, the acidity reviving and in perfect harmony with the tannins, full of elegance in the style of a Burgundy until the end." Vinum

      "Here is a new exciting wine from Francesco Ricasoli that represents the hands-on results of a long zoning and research project underway at this estate to better understand the potential of each single vineyard within the greater Castello di Brolio property. The 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio Roncicone is a soft and velvety expression with a long bouquet of dark and purple fruit, tilled earth, spice and tobacco. The wine offers volume, grit and a more accessible or sweet tannin. This is a great steak wine made from 100% Sangiovese that was aged in 500-liter tonneaux. Some 6,000 bottles were made. This vineyard site is rich in marine fossils." Robert Parker

      "I love the purity of fruit to this Gran Selezione that shows hibiscus, orange peel, violets, lavender, early grey tea, cloves, tobacco and wet earth. Elegant and flowing with lithe yet structured tannins, intensely refreshing acidity and a long, complex finish. Superb sangiovese." James Suckling

    • "CeniPrimo" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017 <br>6 Bottles in OWC

      “CeniPrimo” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2017 · 6 Bottles in OWC

      As a result of extensive soil research, Francesco Ricasoli was able to identify three microlocations, which will be vinified separately from the 2015 vintage onwards. The range of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione now includes, in addition to the famous Castello di Brolio, three cru sites (Colledilà, Roncicone and Ceniprimo), all of which are 100% planted with Sangiovese. They differ in structure and taste in close correspondence with their terroir and impressively demonstrate the complexity of the Chanti Classico region.

      CeniPrimo is a single-varietal Sangiovese from soils shaped by a former river course. It is a 6.4 hectare site planted in 1998 with southwest exposure. This site is in a valley on the Arbia River, and the soils are very complex at this point with alluvium and clay that is low in organic matter and lower in limestone. From our tasting, it seems to be the most nuanced and diverse of the three single vineyard Gran Selezione.

      Intense, fresh and bright bouquet of violets and wild spicy notes. In the drink, an elegant acidity and fine mineral slate traces. Cherry, blackberry, plum, white pepper and a little rosemary lead the perfectly structured drop into a never-ending and multi-layered finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Comes from a vineyard at 300 metres above sea level, characterised by river alluvial soils, stays for about one and a half months in 500-litre barrels: elegant, finely chiselled Sangiovese nose with notes of raspberries, violets and balsamic components; harmonious in the mouth with fine acid points and polished tannin, elegant, almost Burgundian-like finish. Should age." Vinum

      "Deep, dark ruby violet. Initially a bit closed on the nose, then lots of dark berry fruit, especially cassis, black cherry and tobacco. Full and concentrated on the palate, lots of grippy, gripping tannin, still seems a little edgy, needs additional maturity." Falstaff

      "Dark cherry, leather, spice, menthol, rose petal and cedar flesh out in the 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione CeniPrimo. Powerful and intense in the glass, with notable density to match its vertical feel, the 2017 remains pretty approachable. It will drink nicely with minimal cellaring." Vinous

      "Presenting an extremely elegant mid-weight style, the Barone Ricasoli 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Castello di Brolio CeniPrimo dances across the senses with grace and softness despite any preconceptions concerning this hot, not always easy vintage. The wine opens beautifully in the glass and tastes even better the next day. Delicate forest berry, cassis, dried herbs and crushed flowers give the wine a lot of material that is presented to the senses in careful stages." Robert Parker

      "This is very perfumed and fruity with cherries, light currants and just a hint of vanilla. It's medium-bodied with tight, polished and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Creamy and refined, yet structured. Subtle and very, very long." James Suckling

    About the winemakersBarone Ricasoli | BrolioTuscany | Chianti
    Barone Ricasoli | Brolio

    The Castello di Brolio family estate sits peacefully on a picturesque hill in the Chianti mountains, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypresses. Baron Bettino Ricasoli first determined in the late 1860s which grape varieties a Chianti could contain at this magnificent location in the municipality of Gaiole. Inspired by the French wine philosophy, Castello di Brolio, one of the oldest wineries in the world, has launched three particularly fine wines on the market.

    The most famous wine of the house - Chianti Classico "Castello di Brolio" - is produced mainly from Sangiovese and aged 18 months in barriques. Other premium wines include the pure Merlot "Casalferro" and the three recently vinified Sangiovese "Colledilà", CeniPrimo and Roncicone, all of which are in the top Chianti Classico category Gran Selezione. The noble drops are the result of a development that began in 1993: At that time Francesco Barone Ricasoli had taken over the vineyard. He immediately launched an ambitious quality offensive: New vineyards were planted and a scientifically based programme of selection and reproduction of the best old Sangiovese clones was initiated. The youngest offspring of the famous noble family also analysed the individual vineyards - a total of around 250 hectares of vineyards on 1,200 hectares of land - in order to better understand the characteristics of the vineyards and the influence of the soil on the wine and to be able to avoid mistakes on the way from the grape to the bottle. Chief oenologist Carlo Ferrini, who knows Chianti and its wines very well, played a large part in the qualitative high flight of the Castello di Brolio. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The history of the Ricasoli estate is inextricably linked to that of Chianti Classico. Even today, the winery is considered to be a model of the production area." Gambero Rosso

    "Exciting work is underway at Barone Ricasoli to study and map the soil characteristics at the Brolio property. To commemorate these efforts, the estate now has three single-vineyard Chianti Classico Gran Selezione wines, two of which are being presented for the first time. Francesco Ricasoli and his team have identified 19 different soil types during their zoning efforts. The five principal soils are Macigno del Chianti (well-draining sand and rocks called "arenarie"), Scaglia Toscana (or schist-based Galestro), Monte Morello (otherwise known as Alberese limestone with calcareous clay rock), Marine Deposits (with Pliocene marine sediments and sandy deposits) and, lastly, Ancient Fluvial Terrace (or poorly structure silty deposits with clay). The three new wines tasted in this report represent the last three soil types in this list.

    To recap: The Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Colledilà represents the Monte Morello soils. This single-vineyard parcel measures 7.6 hectares and was planted in 2002 on very rocky soils that are rich in calcium carbonate, clay and rich in organic substances. These qualities give this wine its sharpness and focus, which promise long cellar aging.

    The second wine is the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Roncicone that represents Marine Deposit soils. This is a 10.1-hectare parcel that was planted to vines between 1998 and 2000 at a density of 6,000 plants per hectare. The soils are rich in marine fossils with sand at the top and thicker clay under that topsoil. My impression of this wine is that it is the most immediate and softly textured.

    The third wine, the Chianti Classico Gran Selezione CeniPrimo, represents the Ancient Fluvial Terrace. CeniPrimo is a 6.4-hectare parcel planted in 1998 with southwest exposures. This site is located in a valley by the Arbia River, and the soils are very complex at this location with alluvial deposits and clay that is low in organic materials and lower in limestone content. To my palate, this expression was the most nuanced and multifaceted. I would expect this wine to evolve slowly, going through many different incarnations, over the years."
